Designed to be a study guide or self assessment for high school biologists, the worksheet has good questions about cell chemistry, but would need to be reformatted if you want your kids to write their answers on the paper. There are also a few other punctuation issues that should be corrected. If you are looking for some basic questions on the topic, you could start here and edit the Word document to make it useful for your class. Additionally, you could use information herein to make a Jeopardy game.
Cell division and all the biological aspects of activation and chemical signals are detailed here. Cyclin, G phases, cell growth, and cancer checkpoint control systems are explained and the triggers listed. The slides are very clear and logical and the information very useful albeit detailed to a college level.
As your class views each slide, they will be introduced to the organelles and structure of the cell. Details about structure and function are given and also some trivia about their frequency and population. There is also some information about potential related problems. A wonderful introduction to cell structure.
Help your students understand cell division. Explore the topics of mitosis by examining the details of chromosomes at interphase, metaphase, anaphase, prophase, and telophase. Wonderful slides will keep your students' attention while they fill in blanks, read labels, and follow a sequence of photos. Cytokineses, and the evolution of mitotic process from binary fission, is mentioned but could be elaborated upon for further study.
Aside from obviously being a photocopy and a couple of minor formatting problems, this is a laudable lab activity for exploring osmosis. Biology groups cut potato chunks into equal volumes and record the mass of each. They place two chunks into each of three different concentrations of salt solution and later record the new masses. Analysis questions help lab mates think critically through the inquiry. This simple, straightforward activity will enlighten learners about this form of passive transport.
Fourth graders explore the structure and functions of plant and animal cells. In this plant and animal cell biology lesson, 4th graders view several multimedia presentations illustrating the structure and functions of cell. Students label the parts of a plant cell, make a model of a cell, follow instructions to make an "edible" cell, and complete a matching test about the topics covered.
Students work together in groups to complete various stations on the cycles of cells. Individually, they keep their completed work in a folder after following specific instructions on how to complete each experiment. They use the materials in their folders to take an exam.
Tenth graders explore the parts of a cell. In pairs, classmates construct a model of a eukaryotic cell, detailing its morphology and function. With the use of computer technology, 10th graders create cell book for middle schoolers. They design an informative multimedia presentation, on the cell, for younger learners.
Does salt water affect a plant cell differently than fresh water? High schoolers will work together to answer this question through a series of observations of macroscopic and microscopic observations. The investigations are straightforward and easy to follow, and they also lend themselves well to a full lab write up.
Don't be fooled by the title - this biology quiz could serve as an AP biology or college-level biology quiz. Some of the molecules represented may be difficult to identify without seeing the textbook from which this is based. It could serve as a great extension to quick learners.
